About a month ago I finished grad school and now have an MFA in creative writing. For those of you who don’t remember the very first post on this blog, (which back then was the Klog and I should have kept that domain, but you know how that goes) it was the unreasonable goals for… Read More The Big Flail
I do not consider myself high-maintenance. As a mom and a writer, I often get so busy with deadlines and regular life, I don’t have time to take a shower every day. I wear yoga pants or jeans most of the time, and I only get my hair cut when my bangs are so… Read More Snails On My Face
Hey! It’s that time of year again, time for the 11th annual list of Unreasonable Goals. I’ll be 40 in 6 days, so as you may have guessed, this year is crazier and more unreasonable than ever! New twist- as part of my (now 40 goals) for the year, I included 12, 30 day challenges.… Read More Be Unreasonable With Me!
I should be preparing for my 2nd MFA residency right now. You might envision me poring over books, furiously typing away on my computer, and you’d be correct. Those are things I need to do. But I am a 39-year-old married mother of 2 that is preparing for 10 days of no at home time… Read More The Weight
Honestly, I think we need to start each month with resolutions, reevaluating our goals and resetting. Like so many, I do so well for the first few weeks of January. Looking back, because I do love metrics, I’ve noticed I make the most blog posts in January, work out the most, knit more. Some of… Read More New Year Surge
2015 is coming to a close, and despite a few bumps, I must say it has been one of the best years ever. It makes me a bit nervous saying that, since I don’t want to spoil my good luck, but 2014 was one of the worst years ever, so I was grateful for an… Read More 2015 Recap and 2016 Unreasonable Goals
I got a text from a friend this morning telling me measles has been confirmed in her town. She’s pregnant with her first and she’s scared. And I’m scared for her. She lives out of state, but I’m scared for me too. For this very reason, I’ve been trying to stay off FB, and limit… Read More Put Your Seatbelts On.
Many of you know that for the past 7 years (holy cow) I have posted a list of unreasonable goals to complete over the course of the year. I started it back when I was 29, and I called it ‘The 30 List’. I am now way over 30. Each year I list off a … Read More 2015 Unreasonable Goals!
If you’ve been following my sporadic blogging since the beginning, you may remember the 30 List. Basically, turning 30 totally flipped me out. I felt like I had a ton of stuff I wanted to do and hadn’t done. When I was 29 I created a list of 30 things to do before I turned… Read More Unreasonable Goals Are Back!
So, I’ve been working on posting my spreadsheet from 2011 for about 45 minutes, and it’s just not going to happen. You’re just going to have to take my word for it, which I guess you would have to do anyway because I COULD totally lie and skew the results of my own spreadsheet in… Read More Exciting 2011 Recap!
